Ice machine would not turn, dispense, or crush. Made ice fine. First, replaced switch for $7, did not fix it. Second, replaced motor for $80. Old motor was metal, new motor is plastic, but replaced it in 20 minutes, works like a champ. Inside freezer door, took off shelf under the ice maker, unplugged frig, removed two screws and cover plate, removed four screws on motor bracket, unplugged motor, plugged in new motor, replaced bracket and 4 screws, replaced cover, plugged frig in...Perfect!
